A Sonoma County correctional deputy was in custody Wednesday on suspicion of molesting a teenager.
Stanley Tyrone Bragg, 42, was being held at the Sonoma County Jail where he has worked since 2006, Assistant Sheriff Randall Walker said.
Santa Rosa police arrested Bragg Feb. 27 on suspicion of committing lewd and lascivious acts with a child of 14 or 15 years, as a person at least 10 years older than the child, as well as willfully harming or injuring a child, Santa Rosa Police Sgt. Terry Anderson said.
Officers took Bragg into custody at the Police Department on Sonoma Avenue.
Judge Jamie Thistlethwaite set bail at $150,000 during a March 1 hearing and an arraignment hearing was scheduled for March 22.
Bragg, who primarily worked at the main jail, was placed on administrative leave without pay, Walker said.
